She'd put up her shades and stare at the "crocodile pumps and her summer peep-toes and all her strappy sandals." No, she was not old enough for "big-girl" shoes and her mother wasn't going to allow her to wear them. Not a chance. Birdie's wide eyes were downcast and sad, but there was nothing to say she couldn't imagine "how grown up she'd feel dancing in high heels." She imagined all kinds of fun things she'd do with such "beautiful shoes." She decided to ask her mother again and promised that she would "take care of them . . . `cross my heart! Pretty please?" Well, maybe her mother would let her try them out for a little while. YES!
This was an amusing and very charming story of a little girl's desire to emulate her mother all rolled into one. I enjoyed the sweet progression of the story and loved the little feminine Fancy Nancy type of dialogue and illustrations. This is definitely a story for a little fashion conscious girl. On the end pages there are many different illustrations of shoes that Birdie and other little girls would simply adore. Sujean Rim was "originally a shoe and accessory designer" and has penned the perfect book for the future Prada girl!
